Hello and Happy Easter! :)
I'm back from our glamping trip and thank Goodness for that! As nice as it was every muscle in my body hurts! I also missed crafting and seeing your gorgeous makes. There was no reception. I felt a little lost :)
Welcome to my new blog buddies too! Thank you for joining me here. I do hope you will enjoy my posts. There haven't been many lately, I realise. My little family and I have been battling some viruses, colds, chest infections and are still not great, but are slowly starting to get back to normal.
I have made a few things lately and have been wanting to share it with you. I think I'll start with a quick technique and a card.
It's easy.. mix some Glass Bead Gel by Galleria with the gorgeous Distress Stains by Tim Holtz in the colour of your choice. I used the Evergreen Bough, Iced Spruce & a tiny bit of Peacock Feathers mixed and applied separately, Iced Spruce around the edges... you get the idea. You can choose to make separate blobs and mix different colours in them or mix your custom colour... When ready just apply one or more mixetures through a stencil and let it dry naturally. This is the hard part!! Wait! Wait more..hard part over... And when completely dry cut it to size and use on your card as a front panel and decorate.
TIP: mix some iridescent glitter into your clear or your coloured glass bead gel and then stencil for a homemade glitter bead gel! Or, you can mix the bead gel with some of the Tarnished Brass or the Brushed Pewter Distress Stains for a metallic effect. How cool is that?!
Love it? Good! I do! I made a few fun backgrounds and bits for my journaling and other fun projects.. I might use them and share next time ;) As you can see you can use this on a CAS card or a more artsy mixed media project.
Let me know your thoughts or if you try it let me know. I will come and see your make.
